Bachelor in classical piano with 12/12 grade from The Royal Danish Academy of Music in Copenhagen! A personal challenge that pushed my limits and gave me some new experience over last couple of years! I played music by Bach, Bartok, Rachmaninoff and Szymanowski! I’ve also composed music for my new trio The Space Above, that we premiered during the “chamber-music” part of the exam. Flavia Huarachi on flute & Simon Albertsen on drums!
Sometimes things need their time to mature and this has been almost 1,5 year ago, but I’m very happy to share it with You for the first time. Song called PANDI, that came up as a result of my co-operation with my good friend and amazing artist MOO LATTE.
Artur Tuźnik - Piano / Fender Rhodes / Upright Bass
Moo Latte - Samples & Looping / FX / Kalimba / Guitar / Drums

So it looks like it’s been 10 years since I moved to Denmark. Another year passed and I’m happy to be starting the new one here in Copenhagen! In 2018, surrounded by fantastic people and good music, I’ve been lucky to experience art in so many contexts and dimensions.
Some new cooperations happened and I’ve also been fortunate to learn myself better artistically as a composer, performer and educator. At Copenhagen Jazzfestival I presented new music written during the spring for 9 pieces band incl. Atom String Quartet, Irek Wojtczak, Cezariusz Gadzina, Joel Illerhag and Simon Albertsen, as well as new tunes for trio and quintet. Earlier, my composition "Woods" was rewarded by DPA, premiered with the new arrangement by DR Big Band and broadcasted live. Through couple of last years I’ve been realising the importance of composing and its role in the proces of self-expression in the way only natural to ourselves.

Late review from Copenhagen Jazzfestival in Japanese music magazine CD Journal!
"Another climax in this project, Swan Østerbro, is the chamber jazz ensemble led by Artur Tuźnik that includes Atom String Quartet, one of the busiest group in the music scene today in Poland, Danish rhythm section Joel Illerhag and Simon Olderskog Albertsen, and two veteran Polish saxophonists Cezariusz Gadzina and Irek Wojtczak. I was moved very much by the music of that ensemble inspired deeply by contemporary classical music"
Thank you, Yoshinori Shirao!
Premiere of my 9 piece band "SWAN Ensemble" have received 5 stars (5/6) from the biggest Danish daily newspaper POLITIKEN.
During the concert at Copenhagen Jazz Festival 2018 the band under my direction has been playing my music written especially for this occasion! I've been fortunate to be able to feature fantastic ATOM STRING QUARTET as well as saxophonists Irek Wojtczak and Cezariusz Gadzina, as well as fantastic rhythm section of Joel Illerhag and Simon Albertsen.
Some new co-operations to be aware of:
July 13th - Just finished writing music for a 9-piece-band feat. Poland's outstanding ATOM STRING QUARTET! Make sure to go and hear the premiere of this new amazing project at Skt. Augustinus Church!
July 15th - Brand new band with musicians from Norway, Sweden & Iceland! All of them known for their unique voice, will be playing my music at Christiania Jazz Club, late evening 11 p.m. on the last day of the festival!
Plus - my trio with new music at JazzCup, Agergaard/Tuznik/Ginman/Blachman at the great Bellevue Theatre. And a duet with Thomas Agergaard at Skt. Augustinus Church! Hope to see you there!
